Reviews

Reviewer: joe mallett - - February 21, 2015
Subject: Truly A Treat
Warren and Jackson, two pioneers of west coast introspective rock, lay down some great tracks in this one.
Reviewer: mid-maine - - October 13, 2010
Subject: very nice
reads like a demo of some great material that often emerged "over-polished" from the studio.

it'd be nice to see more jb posted up here, though i'm sure he wouldn't go for it.

carmelita . . . sigh.
Reviewer: BIG-D34 - - July 14, 2010
Subject: Fantastic!!!
What a great recording. "Frank and Jesse.." is spectacular with JB sing back-up. Check it out.
Reviewer: t43700 - - May 26, 2010
Subject: Just listen
Don't need to say anything.
Reviewer: markshan - - September 6, 2006
Subject: History lesson
The Archive homepage says that they are building a library of "cultural artifacts in digital form". This recording lives up to that lofty ideal. In spite of some sonic flaws, I give this 5 stars based on its historical importance. You MUST hear this!
Reviewer: comfortador - - August 29, 2006
Subject: wonderful perfomance
this is what archival live recordings are all about. Wonderful stuff.

A completely unique set of music and a very listenable recording. It doesn't sound perfect, but it ain't bad at all.

The performances are incredibly moving. Very relaxed presentation of wonderful songs. The highlight for me is JB's "From a Dancer;" such a beautiful, sad song.

JB plays simple backing guitar on several of the songs he's not listed for.

The performance is 5 stars easily. The recording is a 3+, something like that. So I give it 4. Check it out, though, sometime when you have time to listen to the words.
Reviewer: uneasystreet - - April 6, 2006
Subject: Good recording
This is a great listen, too bad it gets cut. It is really nice to hear some Jackson Browne thrown in and to hear them play together.

I'm not a fan of filler, but that is a great version of Carmelita that was added on.
Reviewer: 12_String - - April 23, 2005
Subject: Old Friends
Jackson Browne jumpstarted Warren's career and it's great to hear the old buddys together. The admiration for each other is evident in this laid back, almost conversational performance. It's like they are at home sitting across a coffee table from one another. Great recording of old friends together.
